Salvage1- Hate to say it but it's not your problem
Lost in Boston

/m69350 Our supervisors only care if they can hit you with something else. Then they pile that one on top.
04:33 PM ET (US)
/m69348 Our supervisors don`t care anymore.

/m69348 Ha, he got shipped over to one of the other stations in town. Postmaster said we had to give up one CCA because other station was short. He was the most senior CCA not on an opt & off he went. He was ticked off & contacted union. Union prez told him too bad, nothing they could do. Mgmt can move CCAs anywhere they want.

And the less USPS pays the Carriers, the more of that you're going to see.

Whenever one of our CCAs is assigned a swing on top of the route he is doing for the day, he intentionally leaves the swing in the office. Then he doesn`t come back to pick it up later. So the closing supervisor grabs an OT carrier or other CCA to take it out late in the afternoon. Then the original CCA shows up on the swing around 5:30 almost 6. Thing is he delivers the route he is assigned as fast as he can & then just goofs off driving around until he spots another carrier & stops to shoot the sh*t. Then the carrier tells him to get lost, he/she is busy. He then moves off to find another carrier to bother.

/m69342 CCAs, as Route Inspectors? USPS could save even MORE money by hiring itinerant crop-pickers to do that. Those people don't even KNOW how to say: "No". Just sayin'...

I heard tell of the inspector that was on an operational audit team. Some of you stay in the office all day people may be familiar with them. Carriers usually aren't. Well anyway, they usually leave out Sunday night/Monday morning and are gone till Friday. Residence Inn seems to be the choice hotel for them because of the breakfast in the morning and "managers special" in the evening. Now the rest of the story. He decided he was not going to spend any of his per diem money for the week. So he loaded up at breakfast, took fruit for lunch, and ate the hors d'oeuvres for dinner. What a cheap skate. Must be kin to LCT. Me, when I traveled, I ate what I wanted when I could. Sometimes I spent more. Sometimes less.

Oh and one of our cca's has been trained to do route inspections and has been sent out to other offices on teams. You know they aren't being paid anything extra.

Just last week had a Inspection Team Leader tell me it would cost around $15,000 to do a full inspection in our office of 7 routes and an AUX.

Almost all outside route examiners are bosses from other areas. It's done on a 'no gain, no loss' basis so they get their regular pay. Reward---time away from home plus a per diem.

Heard a story about a level 13 PM who had his guy pay him regular supervisor pay for the time he was gone. Got a letter of demand and pay adjustment of over $6,000 for his trouble.

Some are Travelers...used to call themselves Auditors. They make a pretty penny, with Per Diem too. Don't know what their salaries are. It probably varies.

anyone in here know how much theses route counters make on these office wide counts they do?

Accuracy and common sense have been sacrificed for speed. It’s what management
wants because that’s what the bonus is based on. Rushed out in the morning and
pushed off the clock in the afternoon. Add to the time pressures the facts that the mailers
don’t update their mailing lists , customers don’t fill out COA’s or notify anybody
that they have moved and it’s amazing the whole system hasn’t collapsed.
    I’ve got 857 stops on my route and almost 300 forwarding/MLNA orders at any one
time. When 90 percent of the route is rental and in the hood you are constantly behind
the curve as a regular . No way I expect a CCA or T6 to keep track.
